Zhongguancun #3 Primary School and “School Zone Residences”

August 7, 2014

konjaku: in looking at the demolition of Liulangzhuang and the effect of that event on the surrounding area, a new topic appeared: the relation of priority elementary schools and residential complexes within the admissions zone of the priority school. The demolition of villages clears the way for the new, more affluent urban society, in which a major preoccupation is getting into the right elementary school. According to the rule, “every child does not have to take an entrance exam, and can attend a nearby school,” even elite priority schools must take children from the surrounding area, according to the zone drawn up by the Education Commission. As has been widely covered in the media, these so-called “school zone residences” are quite expensive compared to similar buildings not within the zone.

“All these residential complexes in Wanliu –Kangqiao Shuijun, Shuimo Fengjing, Fengshang Guoji, Bishui Yuntian, Wancheng Huafu– along with those still under construction, have a special characteristic: the residents can register in a Beijing priority school, the Zhongguancun Number 3 Elementary School. Prices for these school district residential buildings have reached the same level as in Hong Kong. They may go for 100,000 yuan per square meter.
Zhongguancun #3 Elementary School started building its new campus 2013-04, and it is scheduled to be completed next year. At the appointed time, the Number 3 elementary school and the Zhongguancun middle school will move to the new campus. And the C land parcel is just to the west of this new campus.”

Following up on that topic, here is the 2013 notice of admissions for Zhongguancun #3 Elementary School. This notice only covers the Wanliu area. The school zone also includes other parts of Zhongguancun, which are not included here. For Wanliu, instead of referring to streets, blocks, or numbered subdivisions, this notice simply lists nine large residential complexes as falling inside the school zone for compulsory admission.
